Top Quotes from Lucky FABB 2012

For the third year in a row, Lucky Magazine hosted FABB, a conference designed to bring together bloggers, brands and fashion’s biggest names for a daylong series of panels, Q&As and more. Past speakers have included Diane von Furstenberg, the Kardashian sisters, Jessica Alba and others. This year, Lucky took over the Time Warner Center’s tangerine-walled environs for talks with some of blogging’s biggest personalities, execs from our favorite shopping sites, industry vets and more. While the entire first day was available to watch online via live-stream, we collected our favorite quotes from this year’s conference just in case you missed a panel or two.
